What a Man Can Expect in a Worthington, Ohio Dissolution Hearing

If your dissolution hearing is coming up and you do not have a Worthington, Ohio divorce lawyer, here is some information that will help you know what to expect.

The judge or magistrate for the case will ask you the following questions during your hearing:

  1. Have you resided in the presiding county of this case for 90 days prior to the filing of the petition for dissolution?
  2. Have you resided in Ohio for 6 months? Answers to these questions should be yes.
  3. Have you read the separation agreement? (Contract that you sign which outlines the terms of your dissolution)
  4. Do you agree to follow the terms outlined in this separation agreement? Your answers should be yes to these questions as well.
  5. Do you understand that you have waived the right to a lawyer? (if you do not have one) You should have already reviewed this information within your paperwork, so you already know and understand this. Your answer should be yes.
  6. Do you want the court to dissolve this marriage according to the terms of the separation agreement? Since you have read through and agreed to the terms found in the separation agreement prior to the hearing, this answer should be yes also.

After the judge or magistrate is finished with all of the questions, the hearing is over.

This is usually a quick process, since there are not very many questions to go through. Understanding what will occur during your dissolution hearing can help you be calm and prepared. If you have a Worthington, Ohio divorce attorney, they will review what goes on prior to the hearing also.
